Hillary’s email continue to show what an isolated bubble she lives in. This woman has no clue about what real life is like. Apparently, she couldn’t even figure out how to find a TV Guide to look for her favorite shows. She actually asked a tax-payer funded State Department employee to tell her what time the Good Wife and Parks And Recreation came on.
Sounds like she doesn’t even know how to turn on a TV and use the channel guide. How about checking the newspaper? Did she ever think of that? The Washington Post has a daily listing of TV shows and scheduled times. Does she ever read a paper or does she just rely on the sycophantic clips sent from a dozen different people at the State Department?
How about googling the shows? Well, we know from her emails that she didn’t even know whether she had Wi-Fi – or how to find out if she did. And there’s no evidence in her emails that she ever used the internet for anything other than emails. The ones on her private server.
So what’s a Secretary to do? Email an employee is the obvious answer. And no worries about bothering people at home on a weekend night when she had such an important question. How else can she get this information?
In a January 3, 2010 email from Hillary to her aide Monica Hanley at 6:20 at night, she listed a few things to think about “as we start the new year.”
One of the four items was:
“Can you give me the times for two TV shows: Parks and Recreation and The Good Wife?”
Hanley replied at 9:30. (It was the last night of the Christmas-New Year holidays) with the days and times. Of course, she also told Hillary what a “huge honor” it was to work for her.
Other important matters were raised in the email. included working on a menu for the State Dept. Executive Chef chef for what appears to be a personal event. Hillary apparently had an arrangement with the Executive Chef to pay him to buy the food and prepare it for her.
She also asked Hanley to buy skim milk for her tea and to remind her to bring more tea cups from home to the office.
Finally, she asked for a copy of a human rights report on women in Afghanistan.
This woman has no clue what real life is like. Her house is guarded by Secret Service, who also chauffeur her wherever she wants to go – including picking up Chelsea and her baby at the hospital.
State Dept. staff were treated as personal assistants. The Executive Chef at the State Department was available to shop and cook for her. Her staff ordered books that she wants – like the one on how to send emails that she requested. Huma Abedin arranged for her clothing. And we know all of this from the emails that were not considered to be personal.
Another series of emails shows the numerous people at the State Department who were involved in trying to help her use a fax machine and learn how to use her ipad.
And we know all of this from the emails that were not considered to be personal.
Is there anything that she did herself?
